The Laboratory in the News
Leveraging the National Ignition Facility to Meet
the Climate–Energy Challenge
Commentary by George H. Miller
The Journey into a New Era of Scientific Discoveries
The world’s largest laser is dedicated on May 29, 2009.
Safe and Sustainable
Energy with LIFE
A revolutionary technology to generate electricity, modeled
after the National Ignition Facility, could either be a pure
fusion energy source or combine the best of fusion and fission energy.
Livermore’s Joint Conflict and Tactical Simulation is the
most widely used tactical model in the world.
Improving Catalysis with
a “Noble” Material
By infusing carbon aerogels with platinum, researchers have
produced a more affordable and efficient catalytic material.
A Time Machine for
A new, robust time-projection chamber that provides directional
detection of fast neutrons could greatly improve search
methods for nuclear materials.
|Science & Technology Review is published eight times a year to communicate, to a broad audience, the Laboratory’s scientific and technological accomplishments in support of national security and other enduring national needs. The publication’s goal is to help readers understand these accomplishments and appreciate their
value to the individual citizen, the nation, and the world.
